ABD ("All But Dissertation") Hire/Ph.D. Completion Extension

Information related to ABD Ph.D. completion extensions

For those ABD tenure-track faculty who have not completed all requirements for the Ph.D. by the deadline specified in the original appointment letter, an extension letter may be written if there are clearly defined mitigating circumstances that warrant an extension. The Chair and Dean will discuss the situation before the possibility of an extension is shared with the faculty member.
